Animal Health Cohort
The Kansas State University Master of Agribusiness (MAB) distance degree program offers an MAB tailored to individuals working in the animal health industry.
The Master of Agribusiness is a combination of a MBA and M.S. in agricultural economics designed for working professionals. The “on-campus” portion of the program is held at K-State Olathe in August and October of each year.
In addition to the traditional courses you would find in MBA program such as finance and management, the Master of Agribusiness tailors each course to the industry and offers a global animal health industry elective to further customize the curriculum for the student. This will enhance students’ management and strategic skills to help them deal with the challenges of the rapidly changing environment within the animal health industry.
